Hustledown Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade

We are investing £4m to improve the performance of our sewage treatment works at Hustledown. The work will involve the installation of new equipment which will provide additional chemical removal before the final effluent is discharged. This will aid NWL in improving the quality of rivers and coastal waters for the benefit of people, the environment and wildlife.

Update by Jamie Oyebade

Good Afternoon,

Hope you are well?

I wanted to give you an update as to how we are progressing with the survey work at the site.

We have completed topographical and GPR surveys of Hustledown STW which, when we receive the results, we will be able to use to model the existing works and to aide our design.

The Ground Investigation (GI) survey was completed last week. This involved digging a series of boreholes and trial pits as well as taking samples to be assessed at the laboratory allow us to understand the ground conditions at the treatment works. I have attached a photo below.

Please feel free to leave a comment below should you have any questions or even if you just wanted to say hello, we will be more than happy to help.

On behalf of the project team, we are looking forward to working in your area.

Kind Regards
